Will You Be Forced To Participate In Homosexual Pride Celebrations?
National Catholic Register ^ | 10/17/10 | Jimmy Akin

Posted on 10/18/2010 12:43:59 PM PDT by marshmallow

Or will your children or grandchildren?

Before you scoff at the possibility, recognize that it has already been happening to people.

The homosexual lobby is relentless and is not seeking tolerance. It is seeking coerced social approval of homosexual behavior.

That includes forcing non-homosexuals to participate in homosexual “pride” celebrations.

It happened right here in San Diego, where four fire fighters men were ordered to participated in the local “San Diego Pride Parade” (notice how even the word “gay” is missing from the name of the event? That’s evidence of what linguists sometimes call the “euphemism treadmill”—where a euphemism for something viewed negatively eventually takes on the negative connotations of what it was originally intended to substitute for; more evidence of that happening regarding the word “gay” here).

Afterwards, they filed suit against the city of San Diego, and eventually they won a jury trial on one of their grounds of complaint (that they were subject to sexual harassment at the parade by the lewdly-behaving homosexual spectators). This was recently upheld by an appeals court judge.

It would be interesting to see how the Oliver Cromwell Society would react if they were forced to march in a St.Paddy’s Day Parade and vice-versa.

The two groups should be forced to do so! Couldn’t hurt;).

No need to worry. Obama's "Safe School Czar" is on the job!

Obama's "Safe School Czar" Kevin
"use a condom" Jennings
__________________________________________________________

From the Washington Times...

EDITORIAL: At the president's pleasure
'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009

A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar". ..."

According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night...".

On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated." ...

I don’t see how anyone can be forced to do anything like this.

In the case of the firemen, I think it was 'go or lose your job for failure to appear at the assigned place at the assigned time'.

It's tough to take a moral stand that leaves you and your kids at risk of becoming street people, or even giving up significant income within the family.

I would hope that folks would do the right thing, and that courts would support them, but that turns out to not be the case in the modern world.

Too bad we don’t have a picture of that bull dyke Tracy Jarman. She was the San Fire Department Chief who ordered the firemen to go out and get harassed at the disgusting San Diego (Gay) Pride parade. If a male supervisor ordered women to go to a wet t-shirt contest his ass would be fired.
Jarman retired at age 50 and is currently collecting more the $10K per month for the rest of her life.

It makes no difference whether you will show up at such things or provide services to such perverts or not, if you don’t you WILL loose your job, be fined or imprisoned if you refuse especially if you are a government worker (aka servant of the state). In Canada, Europe and Brazil, etc. there are already recent cases relating to these things and the entire constitution of Canada as one example was changed to protect perverted sexualists from any discrimination in the same way as people who have dark skin tone are protected. Therefore such countries are acting under law when they force you to take part, and acting under law when they charge you and if you refuse to remove your possessions or children in extreme cases.

People in western nations have 3 choices,

1) gather a large army and take over the entire nation by force (not doable anymore in any country because the UN holds all power in all the world now and will remove from power any group who takes power by civil war and they will do so to further one world government and no army you could ever create would have enough weapons to counter their assaults upon you),

2) stay in such country and be fined, imprisoned, or have your job, children, or possessions removed from you by court order when you are deemed guilty of “discrimination”, “hate speech” or other propaganda definitions used now by courts to protect perverted sexualists. The area you may live in may not have had such cases come to trial yet, but be guaranteed that they will, NOTHING will stop the globalist Marxist agenda from having all power in all of the world.

3) LEAVE SUCH COUNTRIES NOW while you still can and build up the last remaining refuge countries which will protect you from such marxist and otherwise antichrist powers who have military, courts and police to enforce their new laws and threats.

There are not many refuge countries left, be warned.

Well of course the firemen were paid. Who cares that it's tax money paying them?

And if you are on duty, and don't go where and when, that's a firing offense.

Happens all the time. I was paid to go to a city parade by a tiny start-up that wanted the publicity. I stood on the trailer with hay-bales and our logo around and waved at the crowd.

Fortunately, it was not a queer parade. It was clear, however, that operations WOULD support marketing, and get paid to do it.

Personally, I would have rather been somewhere else.

Will You Be Forced To Participate In Homosexual Pride Celebrations?

Big social justice government increasingly subsidizes the homosexual agenda with all manner of revenue streams; e.g. aids awareness, safe sex initiatives, anti bullying campaigns, sex 'education' -blah blah blah... We are via government deceit being forced to participate by having our monies subsidize that which society continues to place no value in...

One thing that isn’t made clear: was the SDFD required to be there by state, county or city law to help provide for people’s safety, or were the firemen forced to be there to support the homo parade (fill out the attendance numbers, etc.)? The linked article said they sued for being harassed at the parade. I didn’t see any mention about being “forced to attend”. A clear distinction needs to be made here. Then again, there’s always calling in “sick” . . . . Would the SDFD force a Jew who lost relatives in the Holocaust be forced to work or participate in a Hitler Pride Parade?

>Will You Be Forced To Participate In Homosexual Pride Celebrations?<

Here’s a few clues...

Massachusetts man fired from corporation over Christian belief in traditional marriage
http://www.massresistance.org/docs/gen/09d/vadala/index.html
____________________________________________________________

At Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a student was forbidden to offer a traditional viewpoint on homosexuality during a panel addressing “Homosexuality and Religion.” The one-sided “diversity” program, held in 2002, presented homosexuality as normal and healthy.

Apparently the “separation of church and state” argument—usually invoked to prevent religious expression in public places—did not trouble school officials, who invited only pro-homosexual religious leaders to participate....

.....The school also prevented the student from expressing her views against homosexuality during the “Homosexuality and Religion” panel discussion, claiming that the student’s beliefs were a “negative” message that would “water down” the “positive” religious message they wished to convey about homosexuality.6
___________________________________________________________

A long-time volunteer fireman in North Truro, Mass., was dismissed from his position on the Board of Fire Engineers after signing a petition in favor of putting a traditional marriage amendment on the ballot in Massachusetts. Because the petitions are a matter of public record, pro-homosexual groups have resorted to the tactic of posting online the names of every citizen who has signed—in order to invite retaliation against them.....

They were forced to be there but not for protection of anyone. A simple search on google can find the backstory on this. Already in Britian soldiers are required to march in gay pride parades and they recruit actively open homosexuals even though the number of same sex assaults have spiked since open homosexuals were forced into the British military by the EU. Also British soldiers have received the single largest number of compliants of forcible sodomy of civilians and abuse of children of any nation in Iraq and Afghanistan.

None of this of course will make the news. Its true though and I suppose it is hateful to point it out.
